I had my annual physical today, the way they do it in Japan.
(Wow, I hope my fellow Americans soon get a national health insurance system like they have here in Japan … let’s just say that there is not an inch or opening of the body left untouched, and it cost me what a single emergency room visit used to run me in the States. As a matter of fact, an emergency room visit last week in Japan, with x-rays and tests and such, cost me the equivalent of $20 US … and I got excellent treatment).
But, anyway, today as I was stuffed into the MRI machine, later as the tummy camera was stuffed down my throat, then as something else was stuffed somewhere for the prostate exam … each presented a perfect time for a moment of Zazen … (I bet you knew I was gonna say that)
POWERFUL MEDICINE …
(I’m talking about the Zazen!)

a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended)
